We will be using our 7-day JR Pass for the following places:
Kyoto to Himeji
Kyoto to Odawara (for Hakone)
Odawara to Shinjuku
Shinjuku to Otsuki (for Kawaguchiko)
Shinjuku to Hitachi Seaside Park
Shinjuku to Hitsujiyama Park
We’ve got two questions
(1)Will the above train trips involve going through a lot of tunnels or will they be through beautiful scenery? We would really like train trips with beautiful scenery.
(2)Is there a JR train ride from Shinjuku or Kyoto station you can recommend that would have nice scenery during the train journey?
